The staff of the Division of Business, Public Services and Social Sciences (BPS) is committed to assisting instructors so that they better serve our students. The following resources cover items with which instructors commonly need assistance. Be sure to contact BPS staff for additional assistance.
* An incomplete grade contract must be in place before an instructor enters an "I" grade for a student when completing final grades.
The President of PPSC has the sole authority to cancel a class. Whether an instructor has a planned or last-minute absence in teaching their course, they should follow the following guidelines to ensure that the best effort is made to find a substitute instructor:
Always contact your department chair. As direct supervisors of adjunct instructors - department chairs may be able to arrange for a substitute instructor and they are the only individuals able to initiate substitute pay requests.
You should prepare a general outline of what materials or activities you planned to complete in your course for your substitute instructor.
A D2L message and an email to your students are appropriate - especially if you intend to adjust instruction for the class period.
Contact BPS staff for any questions.
